Ms Rebecca Kendall
Bachelor of Engineering – Civil (Engineering Scholars Program)

Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus

“I liked that the first year of engineering is broad and you get to do all sorts of engineering. With civil engineering I like the solution focus. I would like to be able to drive down the road and say ‘I built that’ and to have the opportunity to see what I have made in action.

I was offered a place in Deakin’s Engineering Scholars Program and I also received an IGNITED* scholarship … this helps me to keep me motivated … it’s also given me the opportunity to have an industry mentor which has been very valuable.

As a Deakin engineering student it’s great to have organised placements and to have worked both for the City of Greater Geelong and City West Water … this has given me invaluable knowledge that would not have been possible otherwise.”
